Sure, Windows will do a decent job of estimating how much juice is left in your laptop battery and let you adjust your power management settings accordingly. But BatteryCare goes a few steps further, by providing you with information like the battery’s total capacity, voltage, CPU temperature, and manufacturer, if the information is available.

The program also tracks your battery’s discharge cycle. After a certain number of partial discharges, a notification pops up recommending you completely discharge the battery to optimize performance.

You can also use BatteryCare to automatically adjust your laptop power plan. For instance, it could switch to the home/office profile when plugged in, and the portable/laptop power pan when you unplug the laptop.
